The Norwegian Directorate of Health is an executive agency and competent authority subordinate to the Norwegian Ministry of Health and Care Services.

​The political frameworks to which the Directorate is subject are the political platform of the government in office at any time and resolutions of the government and of Parliament.
 
The political values conveyed by the annual national budget and the instructions in the annual letter of allocation from the Ministry of Health and Care Services are determinative.
